Taco Seasoning Recipe

Growing up, my family used the taco seasoning packages, but my husband’s family always seasoned their taco meat with spices from their pantry. Over the years, I started doing the same because my mother-in-law’s tacos were always so delicious! Now we use our own homemade taco seasoning recipe, and about a year ago I felt like I really perfected it by adding a little beef broth and cornstarch to keep the taco meat moist without being runny. It’s the perfect homemade taco seasoning.

How to Make Taco Seasoning

It’s so easy to make your own taco seasoning. It’s a simple combination of kosher salt, ground black pepper, chili powder, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and cumin. This recipe is for one pound of ground beef, but you can multiply the recipe and keep the spices in an airtight container in the pantry.

The beef broth and cornstarch are optional, but they are GREAT for keeping the meat flavorful and moist. This is perfect when you are using lean ground beef or turkey. If you are using turkey, try substituting chicken broth for beef broth.
